hi mac.

yes ive actually been quite suprised with my 2 clownies at the mo.
since my last post they have both been quite happy- the one that had the problem s now as good as new, and they both seem to enjoy a slice of orange every few days :)
my only advice in this case is to vary your platties diet as much as you can- as IBF says 'variaty is the spice of life' :tup:

*giggles a bit*
My fish have about 20 different foods if I've been shopping. Spyyk alone has... *counts* at least 7...

Varied diets mean less chance of deficiencies, and happy, healthy animals.

mac, a grown fish (most common in livebearers) that was born in poor water quality can end up kinked, even if its a few days off random movement.
